Biden’s Attempt to Force States to Regulate Greenhouse Gases on Highways

An old quote paraphrased from Poet Robert Burns says: “The best laid plans of mice and men, always come to some bad end.” The socialist Utopia imagined by the Biden Administration is a plan like that. Now they are attempting to force all 50 states to establish regulations which would “track greenhouse gas emissions and set declining emission targets for cars on the highway.” In other words, it’s Biden’s attempt to FORCE you to buy an electric car. It falls under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and will be noted in the NPRM (National Proposed Rule Making) in the Federal Register – watch for it under the GHG Emissions Performance Measure.

“The Transportation Department’s proposed rule to force states to regulate CO2 emissions from vehicles on highways is preposterous because it has no basis in law.”

Myron Ebell, director of the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Center for Energy and Environment (Daily Caller)

Mr. Ebell is right, but as with Biden’s attempt to force states and other entities to do what he wants, there is a catch. Federal HIGHWAY FUNDS. And they are using the infrastructure “law” to push this agenda. How many cash-strapped states will fall into this trap? The government is proud to say the Intrastructure bill was bipartisan – but that’s because most of the legislators didn’t read it. And those who did are obviously lovers of socialism/communism.

Biden’s attempt to force states to comply with “climate change” regulations

From the US Department of Transportation website:

Today, to advance President Biden’s commitment to combat climate change and bring down costs for families, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for states and municipalities to track and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) makes available more than $27 billion in federal funding to help State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) meet their declining GHG targets. The new rule would take two important steps to combat climate change:”

  1. Establish a national framework for tracking state-by-state progress by adding a new GHG performance management measure to the existing FHWA national performance measures to help states track performance and make more informed investment decisions.
  2. Create a flexible system under which State DOTs and MPOs would set their own declining targets for on-road greenhouse gas emissions from roadway travel on the National Highway System.

“With today’s announcement, we are taking an important step forward in tackling transportation’s share of the climate challenge, and we don’t have a moment to waste,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “Our approach gives states the flexibility they need to set their own emission reduction targets, while providing them with resources from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to meet those targets and protect their communities.”

Keep in mind that a greenhouse gas “performance management measure” means control over the states, in violation of the 10th amendment. States will have to sue the federal government, and do so immediately.

The proposed rule will be placed on the Federal Register this coming week for comment. Infrastructure law contains regulations that will decimate industries even further: such as the Reduction of Truck Emissions at Port Facilities Program and the Low or No Emission Vehicle Program for the Federal Transit Authority. They also want to force you to ride a bicycle or walk more. In rural states, that’s not feasible.

They don’t care, but you should.
